Optimization of HIV Healthcare Delivery and HIV Outcomes
Dr. McManus's research focuses on the optimization of HIV healthcare delivery and HIV outcomes. Her main focus is domestic HIV research. She was supported during fellowship by an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality F32 to study the effects of the Affordable Care Act on low-income people living with HIV in Virginia. She is currently a faculty scholar at the University of Virginia Translational Health Research Institute of Virginia (http://thriv.virginia.edu/). She has been awarded a K08 Mentored Career Development Award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to continue to study the effects of the Affordable Care Act on low-income people living with HIV and to quantify how health policy changes impact disparities in HIV care for African American people living with HIV. She has worked with undergraduate students, medical students, public policy and public health masters-level students, internal medicine residents, and infectious diseases fellow physicians on research projects and international electives. In addition to her domestic research, she collaborates with colleagues on international HIV research in Canada and South Africa.
